Ever wondered how to teach fraction and mixed number operations in an engaging way to your 5th-grade students?

In this unit plan, students will first learn about adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators. Later on, they will build on this to learn about adding and subtracting mixed numbers with unlike denominators.

Each lesson helps students master the unit through artistic, interactive guided notes, check for understanding, and culminates with a real-life example that explores how fractions and mixed numbers are used in baking recipes, construction measurements, or budgeting.

It's an exciting way to teach fraction and mixed number operations while comprehensively meeting standards.
